Christmas Day is usually spent doing other things with people. My family has Christmas on Christmas Eve and now that mother is older, she wants to rest. While that doesn’t make sense to me, it does to her. I was invited to a friend’s house for lunch and found myself in the middle of two photographers. Plus, Pat had her iPhone with new lenses.

I love antique decorations that have so meaning and value.

Everyone but Mike smiled for the camera. I think he was stunned that I was actually going to take this photo!

I love fun gifts and this is a perfect one. I can already imagine it in use this summer with fresh berries being washed in it!
